Is this a good city for LGBT expatriates? Why or why not?

There has been a lot of controversy on LGBT rights recently and it's not super friendly. - Oct 16, 2016
I don't know except that as a country Malawi isn't accepting of gay or lesbian people. - Aug 2, 2015
Like much of Africa there is a lot formal, legal prohibition of homosexuality but it is otherwise more or a don't ask, don't tell situation. - Sep 17, 2013
It is a highly conservative Christian area, and homosexuality is against the law - - -sort of a don't ask don't tell system. Among the expats it's not an issue. We had a gay couple who lived next to us who seemed happy enough here. But again they were a family. For singles I think it would be pretty hard. - Sep 26, 2012
There is a lot of stigma and discrimination against gay and lesbian people. It is necessary to keep any relationship hidden. - Jul 27, 2009
